Th« OTTAWA HERALD Monday, May 11, 1959 Kuharich Finds Weak Spots I n Fighting Irish SOUTH BEND, Ind. <AP)-After 20 days of spring drills, climaxed by the Varsity's 21-7 victory over the Old Timers, how does new coach Joe Kuharich appraise Notre Dame football? "Well," he said, "our freshman squad over all leaves much to be desired for positions where we don't have veterans available to fill them. Among, the. newcomers who -probably will be included on our top 22 playing squad next fall are quarterback Tom Jorling (Cincinnati), Tackle Joe Carollo (Wyandotte, Mich.) and guard Nick Buoniconti (Springfield, Mass.) "Tackle George Williams, tMarshfield, Mass.) and fullback Mike Lind (Chicago) have knee injuries, but if they recover they should be among the first 22/' As for the main problems, xfu- liarich said: "We have a fine passer in George Izo, but he hasn't too many good targets to throw to. We have no tackle to speak of outside letterman Joe Scibelli and our guards are not much better. We need offensive ends and our secondary defense is inexperienced. Fullback, tackle and ends pose a real serious problem." The star of the team is Red Mack, a 175-pound sophomore halfback from Allison Park, Pa. He scored all three touchdowns against the Old Timers Saturday. "In addition to being a deceptive runner, Mack is a good pass catcher," said Kuharich. Saturday, the Irish used only three basic formations—the slot, one-man flanker with split ends and the tight T. It's the same style of attack employed by Kuharich when he coached the Washington Redskins. Did Kuharich find things just about as he expected when he quit the Redskins to replace the fired Terry Brennan as head coach of his alma mater? "That is an inner sanctum thought," he replied. Wynn And Pierce Put White Sox Near Lead By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer Billy Pierce and Early Wynn, a pair of route-going pitchers in an era of relief-happy' managers, have moved the Chicago White Sox within striking distance of the American League lead. Although Pierce gave up 13 hits he went all the way for the White Sox to beat Cleveland 5-4 in 11 innings Sunday, winning on a single by Bubba Phillips, who had tied the score with an eighth-inning homer. Wynn, a 39-year-old professional, completed the job on the league-leading Indians with a four hit, 5-0 shutout. The Sox backed him up with a 13-hit attack including Del Ennis' first American League homer. Detroit's Tigers continued to streak under new manager Jimmy Dykes, whipping Kansas City 7-6 for their seventh victory in eight starts under the new boss. The New York Yankees proved they are not quite ready for burial by taking a pair from Washington 6-3 and 3-2, the second in 10 innings. The Boston Red Sox also did their bit to tighten up the American League race, grabbing two from high-flying Baltimore 3-2 in 10 innings and 5-1. Don Buddin's first home run won the opener for Leo Kiely. Frank Bauman's three-run triple and six-hit pitching did the heavy work in the second. As the Western teams head East for their first extended road trip, the distance from top to bottom in the league is only 6% games. The White Sox continued to torment the Indians whom they have beaten six times in eight starts. As a result, Chicago is only 1% games out of first place. Pinchhitter Billy Goodman drove in the tying run in the White Sox llth after Cleveland had scored once. Phillips then singled home the winner to give Pierce the edge over Dick Brodowski. Wynn had only one troublesome inning, the third, when Minnie Minoso singled and Rocky Colavito doubled. He tightened up and didn't allow another hit. Los- er Mike Garcia never had anoth er chance. Dykes' Tigers won a battle ol home runs from Kansas City Charlie Maxwell, Lou Berbere and Rocky Bridges did the bomb ing for the Tigers although Rog er Maris hit two for the A's. Ryne Duren had to put down a ninth inning uprising at Yan kee Stadium to save Whitey Ford in the first game. The Senators had scored twice and had two on with nobody out when Duren took over. He blew down the next three. Norm Sibern's double, a sink ing liner on which Jim Lemon missed a shoestring catch, won the second for the Yanks in the 10th inning, scoring Mickey Man tie, who had singled off loser Cailo Pascual. Duke Maas was the winner in relief. Buddin's 10th inning homer sealed the first victory for relie man Kiely of Boston. Bauman's triple led the second game at tack that also included a homer by Frank Malzone. Jack Harsh man and Hec Brown were the losers. Yogi Berra Is Proud of His 148 Games Without An Error Emporia State Wins CIC Championship HAYS, Kas. (AP) - Emporia State won five of the seven run- ling events ajid set a meet rec- • -rd in the pole vault for the CIC mtdoor track and field champion- ihip Saturday. , Fort Hays State, which won the ither two running events, finished second with 75 points to Emporia State's 9114. Others in order were Pittsburg State 36, Washburn 18, Omaha 9%, Southwestern 6 and St. Benedict's 4. Bob: Oden's vault of 14-2% bet tered the 13-7 set in 1955 by James Montgomery of Fort Hays. It was one of four meet records set. By WILL GRIMSLEY Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—Yogi Berra has quit keeping count of all his baseball records but he's pretty fond of his newest one — 148 straight games behind the plate without an error. "All my other records have had to do with batting," the squat, hunch-shouldered catcher of the New York yankees said today. "This one is in fielding. It shows 'm not such a clumsy ox, after 11." Yogi recalled that when he first ame to the Yankees in 1946 his >osses cringed when he put on lie pads to catch. "I must have been pretty raw and rough around the edges," he aid. "Bill Dickey worked hard with me. If I've learned anything as a catcher Bill deserves most )f the credit." Berra caught both ends of a New Delay In Paper Strike ST. LOUIS (AP)—The St. Louis Newspaper Guild says it has postponed membership consideration of a contract to settle the lengthy Globe-Democrat strike. The reason, the Guild said, is that management has asked for more time to study ways of backing up the pension plan. The Guild had planned a membership meeting early this week, but Executive Secretary Rollin Everett said this must wait until at least later in the week. Everett made the announcement after a call, from Guild attorney Morris Levin, who conferred Saturday and Sunday in New York with Charles Goldman, attorney for Globe owner S. I. Newhouse. The newspaper hasn't published since the strike of 332 Guild members started Feb. 21. Negotiators reached a tentative agreement last week and attorneys for both sides said Saturday they have completed a draft of the contract except for security backing de tails of the pension plan. Drysdale Fined For Bean Ball SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Lanky Don Drysdal of the Los Angeles Dodgers was a mighty unhappy pitcher today over that $50 fine or hitting Willie Mays. "What are we supposed to do, hrow everything down the pike nd let the hitters dig in?" asked he big righthander. Drysdale was fined by National League President Warren Giles or hitting Mays on the shoulder n the third inning of a Dodger- Giant game Saturday. Plate umpire Frank Secory reported to the NL Office that, in is opinion, Drysdale threw deli- >erately at Mays. "They're taking everything way from the pitcher and giving t to the batters," Drysdale complained. "I've got one way to itch, and that's tight to right- landed batters. I'm going to pitch hat way if it costs me $5,000 in ines." State Traffic Toll Up Three By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Three one-car accidents on Kansas highways during the weekend took the lives of three people. Earl T. Estes, 62, of Cherryvale, was killed on a county road near Cherry vale Sunday. Clarence N. Woodall, 50, of Merwin, Mo., was killed on U. S. 69 near touisburg Sunday. Mrs. Jess Byers, 39, of Jetmore, Kas., drowned in her car which landed upside-down in. a creek near Dodge City early Sunday. Her two children escaped with minor injuries.

Elfht persons died on Missouri highways during the weekend. , doubleheader against Washington, swept by the Yankees 6-3 and 3-2, the latter in 10 innings. He surpassed the old mark of 147 errorless games set by an ex-Yankee, Buddy Rosar, with the Phila delphia Athletics from 1945 to 1947. Yogi's current mark started in 1957 and covers 970 chances. He doesn't recall the last error he made. "All I know is I'll be 34 years old Tuesday and I feel great," he said. "I figure I have at least two more years in my system, maybe more. I have to take it from year to year, depending on. how I feel. Now I've never felt better." He has a good-sized list of records, most of them in the World Series. He has hit more home runs than any major league catcher—285. In the World Series he has surpassed famed old Yankees like Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio in several categories. CIC Tennis Crown Won By Southwestern HAYS. Kas. (AP) - Southwest- rn players won the singles and loubles championships to give the Winfield school the team title in he CIC tennis tournament Saturday.

(AP) There's nothing like a rainy day for golf talk and that's exactly what happened after the final round of the $25,000 Oklahoma City Open Tournament was rained out Sunday. The same players tee off today, weather permitting, hopeful of completing the 72 - hole tournament. Starting the final round, former Master's champion Arnold Palmer of Ligonier, Pa., held a two stroke lead over Tommy Jacobs, of Whittier, Calif. Palmer shot rounds of 73-64-67 for a 204 total while Jacobs 206 was built with rounds of 66-67-73. Bob Goalby of Crystal River, Fla., and Don Fairfield of Casey, 111., were in good position at 208. Locker room conversation pointed out that Palmer was the 54- hole leader at Houston earlier this year and missed winning, and that ho was co-leader at the Master's only to lose out in the final round. The pros were wondering if this could happen again. Braves Third In KCAC Golf Match WICHITA — The Ottawa Uni yersity Braves finished third • in a field of seven in the KCAC gol match last weekend.

The Cylpnes fared well in the pole vaulting event, the only event in which they scored. Sophomore Bob Lewis tied for second, and Bruce Bundy took fourth. In the preliminaries, OHS runner Larry Cyre pounded through a blinding rain to fourth place, but "ailed to qualify in the open quarter. Coach Orlis Cox took 11 boys to the meet, but only the three men managed to qualify. The meet, the toughest in the state, had 14 A A schools entered. Ray Noble, Arkansas City, set the all-time pole vault record in 1933 at 13-4Vi. Schmanke, who holds the state meet AA record set last year at 12-8, seems to be the only state vaulter seriously challenging Nobel's record. Schmanke, earlier this year at the Shawnee Mission Relays, set a new school record of 12-11%. breaking one set in 1954 by Jerry Potts, who went over the bar at 12-9%. Three Bandits Hit Nursery At KC KANSAS CITY (AP) - Three bandits escaped with $1,700 in currency, $3,100 in checks and a diamond ring valued at $2,500 in a holdup at Cloverset Farm, a nursery south of'Kansas City, last night. Kenneth Haysler, 54, and his wife, operators of the nursery, said they were getting ready to make a night deposit at a bank when the gunmen appeared. By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer The Milwaukee Braves are riding high again with Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews cutting a Wide path through the National League. Aaron's .485 average is the best in the majors and his 49 hits are high for both leagues. Mathews tops the big show with 11 home •uns and 27 runs scored. Their explosive punch is the maiij reason for Milwaukee's first place status. The Braves resumed the lead Sunday by taking a pair from Cincinnati. ,• The Braves scored seven runs n the eighth, after Don New- :ombe left, in the 12-4 opener in which Mathews hit No. 11 and a pair of singles. Aaron broke up the 2-1 second game with a tie-snapping single n the ninth. It was his fifth hit of a busy afternoon. Los Angeles ciimbed into second place for a 3-2 victory over San Francisc% made possible by em Labine's second game-sav- ng relief job in two days. Labine urned in two scoreless innings, preserving Johnny Podres' fourth victory. The Phillies and Pirates 'ran afoul of that Sunday curfew rule n Pittsburgh* After the Phils handed Bob Friend his sixth straight defeat 6-3 in the opener, ;he Pirates had opened up a 6-4 lead on Smoky Burgess' hitting en curfew sounded. They were in the last of the eighth, so the »ame must be completed July 21 jefore it goes into the standings. Down-trodden St. Louis finally won a series, splitting two with Chicago for a 3-2 edge in a five-game series. Although Bobby Thomson hit two homers and drove in six runs, it took an llth inning homer by Earl Averill to give the Cubs a 10-9 edge in the opener. Gino Cimoli, who had a big hitting day, teamed up with Curt Flood in some ninth inning heroics to give St. Louis the sec ond, 8-7. Milwaukee had lost the first two games of the series to the Reds but dropped the visitors into third place by taking the doubleheader. JOHNSON SEA HORSE FOR 1959 MALOTT'S JAYHAWK BOATS 116 S Main—Parts & Service Bob Rush won the first from Newk with help from Don Me- Mahon, and Carl Willey out- pitched Joe Nuxhall in a fine <?>3l. Rip Repulski and Charlie Neal homered for -the Dodgers , and Felipe Aloii for the Giants before a San Francisco sellout of 22,641. Alou's homer following a towering double by Willie Mays in the eighth prompted Manager Walter Alston to bring in Labine. In that suspended game at Pittsburgh, Burgess had driven in four runs with a three-run pinch homer and a double when curfew intervened. The opener was delayed for 15 minutes at the start and was held up again for 55 minutes by rain. There was an oddity in the St. Louis-Chicago doubleheader. Lindy McDaniel of the Cards lost the first and won the second, both on relief. It was the same story for Chicago's Elmer Singleton who carne from the bullpen to win the first and then lost the second. Baseball Scores AMERICAN LEAGUE w.
